Arguably, one of the greatest challenges Kashubian language is faced with today is its diminishing speaker base. Different estimates provide less or more optimistic counts of the number of those who still use it (Mordawski, 2005), and undoubtedly the 2011 census will shed more light on the current state of the matter (Narodowy Spis Powszechny, 2011). However, one cannot dismiss the fact that popularity of Kashubian language is in an unremitting decline. Whereas it can be argued that the world knows examples of language revivals (i.e., Hebrew in Israel), the gloomy truth is that the vast majority of such attempts fail miserably (Mechura, 2007). Recognizing language as the most important aspect of any culture (Xiulan, 2007), the fact remains that once the Kashubs forfeit their language, there will have very little left to distinguish them from their close relatives: the Polish. Unlike the Irish, who have adapted English as the functional language of the state and still maintained their identity, the Kashubs do not have their own country, and retaining their own language is an imperative necessity, if they are to survive as the distinct group of people.
